Great boutique Hotel in a great location... Terrific service and a friendly, helpful staff who were available at all times. Room was clean and nice with a balcony overlooking Park Avenue South. There is a nice rooftop garden and bar along and a nice lower floor restaurant. Didn't love the Tv Stand/Desk in the room, but the little bar area...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

This hotel was wonderful from check in to check out. It is a small boutique hotel that is warm and welcoming. We had two rooms, one a king bed room with a separate sitting area and another room with two queen beds. Both rooms were very comfortable. Nice linens and nice towels too. The queen room actually had a small...

I have always booked Hotel Giraffe as they offer balcony rooms, that allow for easy access for smokers (Gross, I know, blah blah blah) without disrupting others. Upon my last trip I was informed that this was no longer allowed on the property, and as a result I may need to look into other options in the Flat Iron/Kips Bay...

We were looking for a comfortable hotel below 42nd st. Hotel on Park Avenue. Great service. Suite was surprisingly quiet. Well fitted out. Recommend this hotel as good value. Enjoyed complimentary access to coffee, snack and fruit 24 hours in the lobby with espresso coffee machine.

This small hotel has it all: central location, comfortable room (relatively spacious for NYC), well-maintained, friendly and helpful staff, great breakfast included, and a good value. I'll stay here again when in NYC.

We heard about Hotel Giraffe through a friend. We were a little skeptical because the rates were so reasonable. Bed was extremely comfortable, the room was clean and up to date, and the happy hour wine and cheese was great!!

The hotel is in an excellent location two blocks from 28th subway. Walking distance to flatiron and framer you park. Lots around the area. Our room had very thin windows letting in cold air and noise. We had to sleep with heater on to combat the draft. Super noisy 3rd floor along 26th street. The wine and breakfast were great....

Love staying at this hotel. The staff is so friendly. It is in a convenient location. I would recommend this hotel for everyone Breakfast is good-not too heave or light. It is a perfect way to start the day. After being out all day come back and enjoy wine.
